Pros

You are able to serve kids who need mentors and advocates. There are many opportunities to work with at risk youth.

Cons

Management is arbitrary and capricious. There is little recognition and the working conditions are poor. The non profits are run by a for profit which is a bad situation. Raises are arbitrary, salary is about half that of other teachers or adminstrators and poor leaders are often left in charge because competant ones leave. Coorporate staff are out of the loop when it comes to day to day issue on the job and job performance of specific employees (good and bad)

Advice to Management

Be aware of your employes strengths and value them.

    Pros

    The staff, administration, and upper management truly care about children. The focus is on the never giving up on kids. Can be a hard line to tow but definitely is the culture and belief system.

    Cons

    The work is challenging but rewarding. Not a job for the meek.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved in the schools.

  2. Good Environment

    Pros

    Overall good environment to work in. It is easy to feel supported by administrators and staff around you. I like that ideas and opinions are taken seriously, even if it is from an entry-level employee. There's definitely a sense of community within the organization. If you put in hard work and they feel you are capable, they will help pay for further education.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are disconnects between schools and administrators which causes confusion among staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being involved. it means a lot to see administrators in the building being supportive and engaged.
